The Hollywood studio behind “Twilight” set a November 18, 2011, release date for a film version of the last of the four novels in the teen vampire series. But no one knows yet if “Breaking Dawn” will be made into one film or two.
The last film, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” made nearly $710 million at worldwide box offices after its November 2009 release. That was the second installment in the franchise.
The next film, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” is due out June 30, with former horror film director David Slade getting behind the camera. Insiders expect it to be ‘darker’ in tone, than the first two films.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” will be directed by Bill Condon, who made the 2006 musical movie “Dreamgirls” and co-produced this year’s Academy Awards.
(Summit said it would not confirm whether it plans one “Breaking Dawn” film or two.)
